Who We Are

The Milwaukee Environmental Connection (MEC-Connect) is an initiative of the Milwaukee Environmental Consortium (MEC), a group of environmental not-for-profits sharing ideas and space since 2003. MEC-Connect is Greater Milwaukee's first digital environmental community. Local not-for-profits and sustainable businesses with environmental missions unite with eco-conscious residents on meconnect.us. Together, we pledge to protect progress in Greater Milwaukee and strive for a more sustainable future. We seek to inspire volunteerism, raise awareness, connect job seekers with opportunities, and promote sustainable practices throughout our community. 

Members + Supporters

MEC-Connect encourages community support for the sustainable movement. More than ever before, it's crucial your voice is heard.
